If you are like many other home owners, you happen to have a lot of stairs in your home, especially if you have a set leading to an upper floor and another set leading down to a recreational area in the basement. In these cases, it is necessary to find a vacuum that is light enough to carry but powerful enough to be able to get the job done. We reviewed the top 3 handheld cordless vacuums for stairs to help you make an informed decision about which one would work best for your needs.
Cordless vacuums are perfect for stairs because they are small, compact and lightweight, making it easy to lug the cleaner up and down stairs.

Many people injure their back wrangling a vacuum and trying to it in place while they work to clean their stairs. Handheld vacs ensure that you don’t have to hang on to a canister or make sure that it fits on the riser.
